Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya
When the Hurooreeyah rebelled, they isolated themselves in a place. There were 6000 of them and they were united in rebelling against ‘Alee. Continuously people would come to ‘Alee and say: O Ameer ul-Mu’mineen! Verily these people are rebelling against you. He said: ‘Leave them, verily I will not fight them until they fight me and [they will fight me] that’s what they will do.’ So when it came to that day, I came to ‘Alee before the Zuhr prayer and I said to him: ‘O Ameer ul-Mu’mineen! Delay the prayer until it is cooler perhaps I will speak to these people. He said: ‘Verily, I fear for you.’ I said: 'Never! I used to be known as a man of good manners, I never harmed anyone.' He gave me permission to go. So, I put on a very nice garment, the best of what one could get from Yemen and I combed my hair. Then, I visited them at midday whilst they were eating. I had entered upon a people, the likes of whom I had never seen with regards to their exertion in worship. Their foreheads were wounded due to Sujood (prostration) and their hands had become rough like camels' feet, wearing recently washed, untidy shirts with very high, raised clothing with tired and worn out faces [due to not caring for themselves]. So, I gave salaams to them and they said, ‘Welcome O Son of Abbas! And what is this cloak you are wearing?’ I said, ‘what deficiency do you see from me? Indeed, I saw the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- dressed in the best of what you can find in Yemeni clothing, then I recited this verse
‘come forward. ‘This is one point. what is the grudge you have against the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah – and the son of his uncle (‘Alee). A group amongst them said. who has forbidden the adornment given by Allaah. Azza wa Jaal. who is his son-inlaw – and upon them descended the Qur’aan. then he fought and he did not take captives nor did he take the war booty.’ 1 2 Soorah Al-A’raf :32 Soorah az-Zukhruf :58 3 Soorah an-Anaam : 57 and Soorah Yusuf : 40 & 67 2 . which He has produced for His slaves. then their captives are permissible for us and if they were believers then their captives are not permissible to take nor was it allowed to fight them. and to convey to them.’ So I said.the Muhaajiroon and the Ansaar and from the son of the uncle of the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. ‘As for the second point.(‘Alee). and the good things He has provided>>1 Then they said. what you say. says <<Nay! But they are a quarrelsome people>>2.<<Say. ‘And what are they?’ They said: ‘Then one of the points is that he (‘Alee) had men judge in a matter of Allaah whilst Allaah said <<The judgment is for none but Allaah>>3 What have men got to do with the Hukm?’ I said.’ They said ‘three points’. ‘Do not debate with the Quraysh because verily Allaah.’ Then a group of them turned towards me and two or three of them said: ‘Verily. we will speak to him. I said. ‘I have come to you from amongst the Companions of the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. ‘What has brought you here?’ I said to them. I have come to convey to you what they say. and they are more knowledgeable about it than you and there is not one of them amongst you.’ They said. if they were Kuffaar.
I ask you. then the penalty is an offering equivalent to the one he killed. and what is the third point?’ Or he said something similar. and whosoever of you kills it intentionally.I said.’ ‘And regarding a woman and her husband: << If you fear a breach between the husband and wife. as adjudged by two just men among you.’ I said to them: ‘Do you understand.>>4 And it is from the Hukm of Allaah that He delegated men to judge in this matter. this is better. then I will read to you from the Book of Allaah. Jalla wa thanaa’ahu.SallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – that which refutes what you say. appoint two arbitrators. and from the Sunnah of His Prophet .’ I said. commanded the people to judge in this matter. will you return (back)?’ They said: ‘Yes. ‘This is the second point. Do you not understand the saying of Allaah. He could have judged in this matter. Tabaraka wa Ta'aala: <<O you who believe. ‘Do you have any points other than this?’ They said: ‘This is sufficient for us. one from his family and the other from hers >>5 4 5 Soorah al-Ma’idah : 95 Soorah an-Nisa : 35 3 . They said: ‘He should remove the title of Ameer ul-Mu’mineen and if he is not the Ameer ul-Mu’mineen then he is the Ameer ul-Kaafireen.’ I said: “As for your statement That ‘Alee had men judge in a matter that was for Allaah. for the sake of Allaah! Are men judging in reconciling in disputes and in preventing bloodshed or judging regarding hunting a rabbit better?” They said: ‘Of course. if Allaah willed. that if I read to you from the Book of Allaah. Tabaraka wa Ta'aala. Allaah. where Allaah has delegated His Hukm to men regarding the eighth of a quarter of a dirham. do not kill the game while you are in a state of ihram. but He allowed men to judge.
’ ‘2000 of them came back while the rest of them rebelled and fought. Indeed You know that I am the Messenger of Allaah. based upon their misguidance. making her permissible for yourselves for that which you make permissible from other than her whilst she is your mother? If you say: “We make Halaal from her that which we make Halaal from other than her. Ibn Abdul Barr in his Jama' Bayaan Uloom (2/962-964/ 1834) and others. 4 . O ‘Alee! This is what Muhammad. And if you say that. the Mushrikeen.is better than ‘Alee and even he erased his own name and erasing his name does not erase his Prophet hood.’ I said: ‘As for your statement. and his wives are their mothers >>6 and so you are between the two ill judgments. and the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. O ‘Alee! O Allaah. -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam.’ ‘As for ‘Alee removing the title of Ameer ul-Mu’mineen. then I will give you something that will please you: Verily. the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam.” So. we would not have fought you. as a captive.”’ I swear by Allaah. “If we knew you to be the Messenger of Allaah. erase it O ‘Alee! And write this. and the Muhaajiroon and Ansaar fought them.said: ‘Erase it. that the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. which of them do you want to take? Have we finished with this point?’ They said: ‘Yes.said to ‘Alee: “Write.” then you have made/committed Kufr. the Messenger of Allaah. Ahmad (1/243). then would you take your mother.” They.agrees with. So. the Prophet of Allaah – made an agreement/contract with the Mushrikeen on the Day of Hudaybeeyah. Have we finished with this point?’ They said: ‘Yes.7 6 Soorah al-Ahzab : 6 7 Narrated by Abdur-Razzaq in his book ‘al-Musannaf’(18678). al-Haakim (2/150-152). Aa’ishah. “This is what Muhammad ibn Abdullaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. He fought but did not take captives and did not take war booty. said.makes an agreement/contract upon. ‘Yes.Is not men judging in reconciling disputes and in the prevention of bloodshed better than men judging regarding the private parts of a woman? Have we finished with this point?’ They said. “she is not our mother.” then you have also made Kufr: <<The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves.
